THE NOBLE INTENT to meld Baltimore and Washington into a single economic market to attract new business ventures often seems, to put it mildly, like a work in progress.The two cities pursue separate bids for the Olympics when they would obviously be far stronger -- and less of a long-shot -- presenting one unified proposal.Politicians who represent the suburbs near Washington often seem to be at war in Annapolis with Baltimore area delegates, deeply resenting any aid flowing into the city.

ADVERTORIAL CONTENT When comparing Baltimore andWashington, D.C., people often focus on the differences - in favorite sports teams, favorite foods and even brands of beer. This has created a regional rivalry that often leads area residents to commit to being either a “Baltimore person” or “D.C. person.” However, it doesn't necessarily have to be that way. In fact, you can be a Baltimore person and a D.C. person, enjoying the best of both cities from a neighborhood that's the exact midway point between downtown Baltimore and downtownWashington, D.C. - Bozzuto at Maple Lawn.

The launch of regular Saturday and Sunday commuter train service between Baltimore and Washington on the MARC rail line in December may be one of the best things that's happened to Charm City in decades. It will make it easier for Baltimore's harbor attractions, sports stadiums, museums and theaters to attract visitors from the Washington area and give Baltimore residents comparably easy access to weekend amenities there. Perhaps more importantly, it helps make Baltimore more appealing to Washington-area workers as a lower-cost alternative for city living and could spur a new influx of residents into the city again.

OF THE 20 Summer Olympiads that have been held outside the United States, three-quarters took place in national capitals.It makes sense that a country would showcase its seat of government -- the most tangible symbol of its values.That hasn't been the case in the United States, however, where St. Louis, Los Angeles and Atlanta have hosted the four summer games held in this country. That should be a consideration of the U.S. Olympic Committee as it weighs the joint bid of Baltimore and Washington to host the 2012 Olympiad.

Fifty years ago, the baseball shoe was on the other foot. The Washington Senators ruled the Baltimore-Washington area, and they had to be romanced and remunerated to agree to allow the St. Louis Browns to become the Baltimore Orioles. Now, Washington is seeking to acquire the Montreal Expos, and it is the Orioles who need to be persuaded, though Major League Baseball says the Orioles hold no territorial right to prevent the transfer of a franchise to the nation's capital or its Northern Virginia suburbs.

The Greater Baltimore region approves of the way President Bush is doing his job, favors legalizing slot machines in Maryland and would vote for Mayor Martin O'Malley for governor in a 2006 Democratic primary. Greater Washington? It gives a thumbs-down on Bush, is equally split on slots and would back Montgomery County Executive Douglas M. Duncan over O'Malley to lead the state. As Baltimore-area lawmakers increasingly look to bolster their influence in Annapolis by aligning with their Washington-area counterparts, distinctions in voter opinion could play an important role.

WASHINGTON -- It should be a battle for the ages Sunday. Ravens vs. Redskins, Baltimore vs. Washington. Two cities' pride, glory and bragging rights on the line.There's just one problem: Washington couldn't care less.Baltimore, ever in the shadow of the nation's capital, can't seem to get noticed even when it is daring Washington to a fight. Instead of making pre-game threats, Washington is treating this weekend's gridiron contest with mild disinterest, dormant passions and cool detachment -- kind of like a reluctant witness at a congressional hearing.

Three days after terrorists flew American Airlines Flight 77 into the west face of the Pentagon, the phone rang in RTKL Associates' 10th-floor offices on South Street in downtown Baltimore. The nation's military headquarters was still burning. Bodies were still being recovered. The architects at RTKL, like millions of Americans, were glued to coverage on television and the Internet as firefighters and rescue workers continued their struggle. "They wanted to know if we would help rebuild it," said Ronald E. Fidler, a vice president at the Baltimore-based design firm.

"I'm 85 years old and gone way beyond Social Security," the Potomac resident said Thursday. "A lot of things are getting to me like this sinus trouble. Right now my eyes are watering, and I thought, 'My gosh, would I be able to read the cards?' Generally speaking, I'm in good health, but these minor things make you realize you might be losing a step here or there.

Money Magazine has chosen the combined Columbia/Ellicott City area as the second-best small city to live in America for 2010. The magazine's annual ranking had the same area as No. 8 two years ago. Calling the region an "economic powerhouse," the magazine stressed the thousands of federal and related jobs coming to nearby Fort Meade and the National Security Agency in Anne Arundel County as one major reason for the compliment. The magazine mentions the county's "excellent schools," relatively low foreclosure and unemployment rates (5.2 percent)
